Sine Qua Non Syrah Nail In My Cranium Eleven Confessions Vineyard 2005, 750mL (WA100, ST97, WS98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Sine Qua Non Syrah Nail In My Cranium Eleven Confessions Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Barbara

WA100, ST97, WS98
Rated 100 points by the Wine Advocate: `In addition to these new releases, I was also able to taste through a number of older vintages, including the 2001 Albino, 2006 Hoodoo Man, 2003 The Inaugural, 2004 Ode to E, 1998 E Raised, 2001 On Your Toes, 2005 Nail in My Cranium and 2007 Syrah Dangerous Birds. To say I came away impressed would be an understatement. Anyone who claims this big, rich style can`t age needs to taste these wines. I opted to just list my scores for the older releases as I find Bob`s initial write-ups spot on.` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #208 of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `About as good as it gets across the board, these singular, incredible wines are the result of an obsessive attention to detail at all stages of the wine making process. There is no secret or hidden magic going on here. The incredibly talented and down-to-earth Manfred Krankl simply walks the walk as opposed to only talking about attention to detail or offering up the standard, wine is made in the vineyard comments. Looking at the vintages focused on here, 2009 has produced a decadent, voluptuous style that offers up thrilling levels of fruit as well as an approachable, heady richness that`s hard to resist. While they possess ample depth and structure, I would drink these before either the 2010s or 2011s. The 2010s here are stunning and have everything; gorgeous fruit, awesome concentration and incredible purity. While the most age-worthy of the recent vintages, they`re a spectacular drink even today. The 2011s, which were all tasted out of barrel, have additional freshness and focus over the 2010s. They have solid concentration and overall balanced profiles that should allow them to cruise in the cellar.`
